A dental crown is one of the most commonly recommended treatment options for addressing a tooth that is decayed or damaged and providing a natural looking result that strengthens the tooth. Dental crowns can also enhance the appearance of a tooth that is discolored or misshapen as part of a smile makeover.
Dr. Bard Levey places high quality, ceramic dental crowns in a single visit using CEREC technology. One of the FIRST 100 dentists nationwide to incorporate this CAD/CAM technology into his Croton On Hudson dentist office, Dr. Levey has helped countless patients treat a wide range of concerns with quick, comfortable and lasting treatment:
- Cracked or chipped teeth
- Decayed teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Replace metal fillings
Same Day Crowns: What To Expect
Dr. Levey will begin your treatment with optical impressions- no need for messy impression trays and gagging! These digital images are instantly available and used in the highly accurate design and fabrication of a custom matched, ceramic dental crown.
While you wait for about 15 minutes, your dental crown is milled with high quality ceramic materials. After a quick “try-on” for fit and comfort, Dr. Levey will complete the final polishing and glazing using an in office porcelain furnace.
Your new crown is then placed and permanently attached- no need for uncomfortable temporaries or a return visit to our office. In a little over an hour you will be ready to walk out our office door with a beautiful new crown that will last for years with proper dental care and good oral hygiene.
